The picture says more than a thousand words and I like the Status that arrived. It is essential. It does look like it is overwhelming the space above x<>y though.
You're right, this can be done better:

We're approaching real life, thus dealing with real fonts, vector graphics, and real estate on the calculator top. This is not half as sexy as new functionality but has to be done. Just to let you know... 8-)

If anyone has any objection to this, may they speak now or be silent forever. :!: 8-)

Very pretty. Well done.
The arrows between x and y on the [x<->y] key jump out ever so slightly - are they a tad large?

Otherwise, I agree with Jaymos. Well done!

They share the font size with x and y. 8-) Please allow me quoting a former boss of mine: "Please draw that to scale!" ;)

I could say the same about the DM42, but nobody asked... :-)
